problem in context.server.transfer()

P: n/a
I am implementing Front Controller in as outlined in Microsoft documentation titled "Implementing Front Controller in ASP.NET Using HTTPHandler" (

Everything works well except for context.server.transfer(string url) method (refer to RedirectingCommand.cs class in the above documentation)

Here are the error details

Server Error in '/DCT' Application

Error executing child request for /DCT/WebUI/Labor/test.aspx.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

1) I executed the application in .NET Framework Version 1.1, and still get the same exact error

2) I searched in knowledge forums, and realized that this is a very common error

3) The application works fine if I use context.Response.Redirect("/DCT/WebUI/Labor/test.aspx"); instead of context.Server.Transfer("/DCT/WebUI/Labor/test.aspx"); method. But I need to use Transfer method, as I have to pass some objects from page1 to page2

Please let me know the possible solutions, and if there are any patches available to correct this problem
